The Lost Chord: February 14 - Slings and Eros
Cupid, draw back your bow, for two contrasting treatments of the allegorical myth of Psyche and Eros. Frequently interpreted as a metaphor for the elevation of the soul through love, it’s a beautiful tale of blind faith betrayed and redemption achieved, the protagonists clambering through travails to triumph. César Franck’s version is full of romance and ardor. Lord Berners’ is decidedly cheekier, more suited to the ballroom, perhaps, or even an amusement park. Get Psyched for Valentine’s Day. Love is blind, then kind, this Sunday at 10 pm.
